NeNe Leakes Slams Marlo Hampton After Blowout With Kenya Moore Over Real Friends ‘The Thirst Is Real’

Posted on Jan 18 2017 - 1:29pm by Terri L. Austin

On The Real Housewives of Atlanta, Marlo Hampton made her return.

When she first arrived on the show, she and Nene Leakes were tight. Marlo even played the part of bridesmaid in Nene’s second wedding to husband, Greg.

As things fell apart with Nene, Kenya Moore offered Marlo a shoulder to cry on. But Kenya didn’t invite Marlo to her birthday party — after texting Marlo and asking for ideas about how to celebrate. And now the two women are no longer friends.

Marlo related what went down as she shopped for wallpaper with Sheree Whitfield.

“Before I was just like, ‘Oh Kenya is so sweet. People don’t understand her. She’s the rebel like me. But now I don’t want to deal with you Kenya. I don’t trust you. I think you’re crazy, a fake, a phony, you’re miserable, you’re not happy’…When I got a text one day like what, about five days before her birthday, she’s like, ‘Hey diva. I want to make my birthday fabulous. What do you recommend?’ I said, ‘Kenya, whatever you do, I need flowers and candles there.’ Girl, I saw on Instagram and on the blogs, she had a birthday party, I didn’t get an invite. But then I looked on the picture and I’m like, ‘Oh okay, so maybe this is why I didn’t get an invite’…I guess she just wants to go by status level of friends. It’s like, ‘Ooh NeNe’s talking to me so now I’m gonna be being her friend. I’m happy and I can’t be Marlo’s friend.”

Now, you know Nene wasn’t going to allow her name to be taken in vain. So she clapped back on social media, posting this snap of her laughing, saying “the thirst is real.”

Later in the episode, Marlo and Kenya met for the first time in months at Phaedra Parks’ charity popup shop. Marlo still felt stung by not receiving a birthday invite—especially since Nene stole her spot.

“It still is unacceptable — a friend you don’t do that to…If you could have NeNe sitting next to you but not a friend of three years, wow!”

Kenya said that she was still friends with Marlo and offered an apology. Not good enough! Marlo called Kenya a bitch and stomped off.

So, why is Marlo still coming around? And how did she and Sheree get to be such good friends?

    Sooooo, Marlo gets a text from her fake friend asking advice about what to have at her birthday huh? At five days why didn’t Full of Sh*t Marlo ask her fake friend where was the invite then before giving advice? I tell you why because Marlo had no issue with it until she saw Nene on Instagram at the party and she had the opportunistic idea to cause Bravo drama by creating an opening for her to having airtime. As I said before, before you call someone a fake friend know what it means to be a real friend. Real friends don’t wait for filming to start to air out issues with their friends on camera, opportunistic friends do that. Real friends don’t go on Twitter to try to humiliate their friends, fake friends do that. Real friends don’t go on Twitter and hate on their friends appearance, jealous b*tches do that..

      Well d*mn, Sugar. Couldn’t have said it better myself.

      Preach, preacher!

    One fame wh@re clapping back at the other. It takes one to know one. The thirst is indeed real

  • RealitytvJunkie

    Kenya is smart keeping her distance from this thief and face slasher. Marlo is a hood booger and way out of Miss USA’s league.

    • BetteDavisEyez1

      Wasn’t it Kenya that defended the face slasher by saying everyone has a past. Marlo is a good girl?!?
      Now that she is in the good graces of Nene, she no longer has a need for Marlo. That is really all it boils down to.

  • the underground train

    Yes the thirst is real. The thirst is real when a supposedly rich bitch gets slapped with a huge tax lien then goes to one of the poorest countries in western hemisphere and tries to pull off a pyramid/ponzi scheme on its destitute citizens.

    • italiano bambino

      Lol plonk

  • Bryan

    Why isn’t Marlo back in prison

    • GetReal2014

      Good question!

      • Bryan

        What IS her purpose anyway ??? what does she do ??

        • GetReal2014

          That, my dear sir is a mystery unbeknownst to us all.

  • Sunflower

    Sheree is so busy stirring the pot that she forgets to pay her taxes.
    She owes the IRS almost $300,000 in back taxes; they keep issuing liens after liens.
    No wonder she can’t move in – the IRS must have placed a LIEN on her “Certificate of Occupancy”…. (Just Kidding..!)

    I just want to say to Sheree…
    …. Kenya’s Plumbing is Mighty Fine.

    • GetReal2014

      I’m sure that’s a large part of why she’s so angry with Kenya, because Kenya did 10X more with her time and money on RHOA than she ever did. Oh, let’s not forget that it was Kenya who lobbied for her getting her job back.

      Jealousy is a bitter pill to swallow.

      • Sunflower

        At this point all I can do is shake my head when the financial delinquent stories of Sheree pop up!
        Kenya probably felt sorry for Sheree not having a steady income to finish her house, that’s why she lobbied to bring her back on RHOA. I know for a fact that Kenya didn’t ask Nene permission to do so. She did it out of her good heart!
        We all need to refrain from calling that house a château.
        With all those liens slapped on it… it’s more like an IRS recycling paper factory!

        • GetReal2014

          I don’t understand how she can twist her lips to talk about anyone as dire as her situation is. Shows you how delusional she is..

          • Sunflower

            … and making all these ridiculous noises, when she is invited to someone’s home!
            Her situation is desperate.
            I wonder if she’s already carrying an EBT Card – like Pee’s Boyfriend Todd (D.C)…!!

          • GetReal2014

            Yep, too old for that high school BS. She looked like a dang fool to me, especially since everyone knows she doesn’t have a pot to p*** in and a window to throw it out. If she had any pride she’d shut her mouth, coast and continue to get a check until she can finish her house, but she’s too dumb to do anything sensible. Instead, she acts like more of a child than her children. I can’t with her graying @ss with the mentality of a toddler.

      • Bobbi

        I totally forgot about that! She did lobby for Sheree to come back. We knew that was a mistake. Just as it would be to get Nene back.

        • GetReal2014

          I hope she learns from this. Let them heffas hang themselves. It has nothing to do with her and it’s not her problem.

          • Bobbi

            It’s true. Hopefully she sees those friendships aren’t worth the headaches they bring. I sure hope she drops Nene. None of those girls are loyal.

          • GetReal2014

            They’re just not worth the effort. They will die being the exact same way they are today. In all of the years that we’ve seen them there has been no growth. I don’t see them changing ever.

            I know that people say “Never say never.” But in this case I say Never.

          • Bobbi

            Agreed. Come over to the new Marlo/Kenya thread.

      • Bobbi

        I can’t believe this chile has another lien. This is beyond pathetic.

        • GetReal2014

          I can. It’s typical Team Trash mentality. Accuse others of chit you’re guilty of and then lie through your teeth. Build an imaginary façade of “wealth” that you can’t sustain and then call others broke. Gang up and set up negative situations against one and all for no discernible reason. Yep, that sounds like the lot of them, all day.

  • Sunflower

    Since Marlo and Nene like to tweet so much…
    They both should seek a job with the new Tr.ump Administration.

    • GetReal2014

      Ha ha ha, LOLOLOL! That’s a good one.

      Those two, seriously? Can you imagine having a SM spat that’s visible to the world instead of sitting down and talking to someone or picking up the phone? How old are these women?

      • Sunflower

        We really can’t elaborate on this nonsense!
        So funny that they both have to involve Kenya in their tweeting wars.
        Yes… How old are these women??

        • GetReal2014

          What’s most embarrassing is that they’re not embarrassed. That says a lot about both of them. I can’t imagine being a parent and I’m arguing with a former friend on SM. That is crazy!

          • Sunflower

            It sure is crazy….
            Did you see them both so proudly displaying their “Booster Birkin Handbags” in the photo??
            No Shame… LMAO…

          • GetReal2014

            Pathetic azzes.

        • BetteDavisEyez1

          How did Nene involve Dust Mop?!? All it said was Nene called Marlo thristy.
          I don’t think anyone would deny that fact. Marlo will do anything to be on the show.

  • Sandra Oh

    Funny how nobody seems to miss the Moose anymore.

  • BetteDavisEyez1

    This is so lame. Neither one of them were ever friends. Kenya used Marlo to get under Nene’s skin & Marlo used Kenya for cameratime. That is all.

  • clare

    I cannot stand that nightmarish, horrific, and atrocious Nene but she’s certainly got a point. Marlo IS thirsty as hell.

  • WeCouldBeHeroes

    She’s right – the thirst is real
